There are as many ways to Heaven as there have…

There are as many ways to Heaven as there have been,are, and will be human beings, provided they sincerely wish for this divine felicity. The best a man can do is to thank the Celestial Spirits  for all good things when they come; to be patient in all adversity; to ask forgiveness when he had erred and offended against the Laws( which is are engraved on each man’s heart, if he will but heed and read them); thus, when has gone astray somehow, help will be sent to lift him up again; for the Gods are terribly patient.

When heaven is about to impose an important office upon a man, it first embitters his heart in its purpose; it causes him to exert his bones and sinews; it lets his body suffer hunger; it inflicts upon him want and  poverty, and confounds his undertakings. In this way it stimulates his heart, steels his nature, and supplies that of which the man would be incapable.
